The Difference Between Progressives and Conservatives... we aren't apologists for when our side does something illegal and unethical. I have written negative posts about William Jefferson and Gary Siplin criminal behavior. Jay Tea of Wizbang takes a different approach. He attacks the Left for Larry Craig's arrest.

Prepare for Senator Craig to be referred to as a "prominent" or "leading" Republican extensively in the next few days, along with mention of Mark Foley and old whatshisname, the evangelist from the Mountain States, but nary a mention of Gerry Studds, Barney Frank, Jim McGreevy, or any other prominent Democrats caught up in gay scandals.

The really fun part would be to see Bill Moyers comment on this. After all, he was the one who was tasked with damage control when Walter Jenkins, a top aide to Lyndon Johnson, was caught doing something similar to what is alleged against Craig -- but Jenkins' men's room was in a YMCA.

As David Scott Anderson points out, Democrats such as Barney Frank haven't made a career out of demonizing gays and lesbians. Craig voted against same sex marriages.

"Blaming the liberals for Craig's downfall?" Hell, no. The idiot sank himself. What I was predicting was the liberals would seize upon it as a cudgel to tar all conservatives for this one dipshit's idiocy.

But I trust you've been equally vocal about condemning Ted Kennedy (vehicular homicide), Patrick Kennedy (assaulting an airport security worker, DUI), John Corzine (failure to wear a seat belt), and a host of others alongside Jefferson and Siplin?

Oh, and I'm dying to hear what you have to say about one of the Democrats' biggest fundraisers (Norman Hsu) being lauded and feted by the party bigwigs while he was a fugitive from justice.

Craig's done. He's history. The Hsu story is ongoing.

J. This guy doesn't really post the truth. He tows the liberal left wing Move.On.Org B.S and blasts all things republican. I thought he'd have some compassion for Craig though.
